People grow up dreaming about becoming musicians, but chip musicians? Gareth Morris sure did, adapting some 1980s Atari hardware (an 1040ST keyboard) to make "chiptunes," music created using just the raw sounds of the original equipment. The result usually sounds like a cross between Depeche Mode and the sound effects from Yar's Revenge… yet somehow still cool.
Vanessa recently rocked out with from Morris and his modded PC to see what it was like to be an Atari DJ. Check out the video to start your chiptune addiction, and if you've got a classic Atari PC lying around, Morris' site has all you need to join the ranks of chip musicians. Groovy.
